RIVER FOREST, Ill. (Sept. 4, 2018) --- For any athlete, there are good starts to a season and there are great starts. But for CUC running back Lance Moise, the next level of adjective may have to be coined to describe his performance versus Beloit College in last Saturday's season opener.
Moise was named to the initial D3football.com Team of the Week for the season. The junior eclipsed his previous single-game record for rushing yards (282 v. Concordia Wisconsin, 2016) with a 303-yard game as CUC took down Beloit 36-10. He scored two touchdowns, each from a yard out, but his long runs were the story of this game. He broke free for 74 yards on the first play from scrimmage, setting up his first score. Moise later added runs of 39, 34 and 40 yards as well as another run that saw him hurdle a BC defender. All this enabled him to become just the third back in CUC history to run for over 300 yards in a game (Andrew Maddux 2012, Khyree Copeland 2010).
